to suspend the debt ceiling but the spending sequester cuts are still set to kick in on march 1st and i hope they do. now house speaker john boehner says president obama is out to annihilate the republican party. we'll talk about all that with new hampshire senator kelly ayotte and our political panel in just a few moments. >> also, big time golfers phil mickelson, tiger woods, lebron james and derek jeter are all supply siders. we'll explain that later this hour. >> i wasn't involved in the talking points process. as i understand it, as i've been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the state department all participated to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available. >> that of course was secretary of state clinton today on capitol hill saying she had no role in susan rice's false talking points on the benghazi consulate attack. but will we ever find out why ambassador rice denied the terrorist attack and misled the public saying this on "meet the press." >> what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to w
is that business seemed to respond to all the uncertainties surrounding the debt ceiling. by cutting back on capital investment, and not firing people. there was a lot of anecdotal evidence over that, that they were waiting this out. that maybe they thought this time around it was more bluff and bluster than reality that we'd hit the debt ceiling. and that seems to have paid off. people don't -- employers don't like to fire employees. not only because of, you know, being gentle human beings but because it's costly for them to do that. they tried to hold on. what we seemed to be seeing here right now is i held my exuberance last week because i thought it was a one-off seasonal adjustment thing and you do have to be careful in the month of january, as people come off the rolls because of the seasonal hiring. and there's still some reason for skepticism. but staying down at this level for a second week, joe, we've always said 350 was the bottom of the range, and we're putting in a new bottom down there this 330 that you've got to think about. probably payrolls up near 200,000 or above and ma
. eventually we'll have to deal with spending cuts and the debt ceiling debate. whether or not that's it. for the meantime, the markets run a long time just because they are soaking up all the stimulus from the fed. >> a lot of stimulus from the other central banks cutting trase today. greg, you want to get in front of this train and fight the fed? >> yeah, i think that the fed is going to continue pushing pretty hard this year but equity investors have to take a look at what's in the fed's tool backs and realize they have shot every arrow that they have got. they will keep gig qe this year, maybe another $1 trillion but even inside the fed there's doubts about how much more effective will be at this stage, what, with long-term interest rates as low as they are. tomorrow i don't expect any fireworks from them. i'll be interested to see how they characterize the economy, whether they are getting more comfortable with it now that we have the biggest piece of the fiscal cliff out of the way or whether they are still concerned that employment is sluggish an inflation is tracking kind of low.
right, phil, thanks so so mh anyway, appreciate the time. debt ceiling fight delayed for now, but if it goes to plan, the agreement does nothing to stop automatic across the board cuts taking effect march 1st. what do we do now? mike lee joining me from capitol hill. senator lee, thanks for coming on. you know, i think a lot of americans are surprised to hear right now that we still have sequestering in place with all the rangeling going on in the last couple days. what's the plan? >> you know, at this point, there's no plan on the table because the attention has all been focused on the debt limit issue, and two are related, of course, because, ultimately, it's not the debt limit itself the problem. it is the spending that goes on propelling us forward with having the raise the debt limit every six to 18 months because we can't get spending under control. passing this in 2011, raised the debt limit then, put in place automatic cuts to kick in if the super committee dbt have a proposal. they are about to kick in. >> what do you think is going to happen? what's the talk? >> you
at the debt ceiling. which one of those, to you as a business leader, matters the most, affects business the most? >> i think, um, what matters the most is providing clarity. clarity to business, clarity to the country at large. and that's what people want. every time there's a survey, you see that they want clarity. and that's why i think it is so important to have a solution. liz: well, now you know you have clarity on the fact that people have the payroll tax back into their paychecks. >> sure. liz: are you seeing any effect on that where people have less money in their pockets, and maybe they're not buying coca-cola as much? >> well, i think generally speaking we still see great opportunities in the united states for our business in the coming decade and continuing on from there. we haven't seen an impact yet. it's too early to tell. liz: okay. >> but i would say this, um, i would say if we can have a solution -- which i believe we will -- for fiscal reform, if we can have a solution in the united states for tax reform to get a 21st century tax policy in place that we can all be prou
back in the driver's seat because they cooperated on raising the debt ceiling. they forced the senate democrats to put up a budget. the next thing will be the continuing resolution, short term spending cuts. i think the gop by stopping taxes is back in play, they are back in play. >> i love your optimism, larry. i wish i could be jumping up and down with you. but i'm afraid the republicans are in full retreat. i'm hoping -- i know they won't agree to this tax increase. the senator is absolutely right. but the problem is the democrats are using this as another opportunity to put republicans of throwing granny off the cliff, caring only about their millionaire and billionaire buddies. patty murray said we'll put it on the people who best can afford it. it worked for president obama, the democrats, like the cbs news political director said is to go for the jugular, to cut the throat to destroy republicans. this is not about achieving a budget or growing jobs. it's about destroying the opposition so they can continue grow the size of the federal government, continue to increase deficits a
. >> there is untranssy against on both sides. compromise on taxes and spending. i was happy to see the debt ceiling thing put back to may if not further. david: professor alan blinder. thank you very much. sandy, over to you. sandra: apple getting slammed after its disappointing forecast. a long list of analysts just now cutting their ratings and price targets. why wasn't this done earlier? coming up we have an analyst who sent up a early warning last week. up next as well as back to davos, the president of costa rica tells liz how their tax policies are bringing in business from some big companies. >> i'm adam shapiro with your fox business brief. it was a mixed day on wall street but the s&p did manage to post its 7th straight day of gains. at&t reported fourth quarter results after the closing bell. earnings per share for the company fell a penny short of stilts coming in at 44 cents. revenue came in slightly better than expected, $32.6 million. >>> officials at sac capital are giving investor an update on an investigation by the securities & exchange commission. that's what sources are telling fox bu
, chris. we've got sequestration coming, we've got the debt ceiling coming again we have to deal with in may. your article, this is a heck of a title, once unthinkable severe spending cuts now seem plausible, how so? >> t.j., what we saw in the congress was a few years ago they put together such big budget cuts, $1.2 trillion in cuts split 50-50 between military spending and domestic spending. and those were so big that everybody agreed at the time that there was no way we would do kind of this across the board budget ax. we're going to come back, we're going to rethink this and we're going to try to get those savings in a more -- in a smarter way. and that hope as it were is pretty much shot now when you talk to the republicans and democrats in the congress. republicans believe many of the deficit hawks out there believe this is the best chance they have for cutting spending. it's going to become law on march 1st. it's already on the way to taking effect. and democrats are happy to replace some of those cuts, particularly in the military side, but they want to do it with tax inc
